Redress: Creating a Sustainable Movement For Change in Fast Fashion

per copy

Redress is an environmental charity that aims to encourage consumers, the fashion industry and manufacturers, to take a more sustainable approach to garment and textile manufacturing.

Every day, thousands of tonnes of unwanted garments and textiles are dumped in landfills, an issue that has escalated due to fast-fashion production. Textile manufacturing consumes valuable resources such as water and releases harmful pollutants, while worldwide shipments account for 10% of global carbon emissions.

Redress encourages consumers, both corporates and individuals, to take a more responsible attitude to fashion, through clothing drives, redistribution of garments, and pop up stores in Hong Kong. It also works with the global manufacturing and textile industry to encourage greater sustainability through key initiatives, events and forums.

Learning Objective:

1. Understand the concept of value and the importance of personal value to the workplace.

2. Explain social identity theory by demonstrating how Redress’s organizational vision/mission appeals to different stakeholders.

3. Understand different types of leadership and how leadership plays a role in the success of Redress.

3. Discuss how problem solving methods can apply to social entrepreneurship to develop sustainable solutions.
